Some­thing to rave about

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Fashion -

A NEW pho­to­graphic ex­hi­bi­tion at ECU pro­vides a unique in­sight into Perth’s rave and dance cul­ture scene.

Mod­ern Day Tribe – Per­for­mance is a pho­to­graphic jour­ney look­ing at the com­mod­i­fi­ca­tion of rave cul­ture as it trans­formed from an un­der­ground scene to be­come part of to­day’s main­stream youth cul­ture in the form of elec­tronic dance fes­ti­vals.

On dis­play is a vis­ual archive of live dance im­ages and con­tem­po­rary ur­ban land­scapes that were once sites of rave cul­ture. The im­ages span 15 years.

The ex­hi­bi­tion by ECU Pho­to­me­dia lec­turer Dun­can Barnes is on show at Spec­trum Pro­ject Space, Mt Law­ley ECU Cam­pus, from Oc­to­ber 8 to 15.

One of the im­ages from Mod­ern Day Tribe – Per­for­mance.
